Just another day in Oilers paradise

Tuesday started hilariously enough. After the Oilers went from a season where they had 45pts in 48 games in 2012/2013, they went to 67pts in 82 games in 2013/2014. Yet according to Oilers GM Craig MacTavish, the coaching is better, the team is in the right spot, that no major roster shake-ups are needed this summer. Is there two different Oilers teams and I just keep happening...

RECAP: Game 73. Kings beat Penguins 3-2 ☆

Right now the Penguins are like that family member of yours who’s in a dark place, that one person who everyone knows is headed for disaster, but no one talks about it because they don’t want to look like a dick. Some days he or she looks great, but other times you get a true look into the hell that is coming. You’re waiting for the phone call announcing a DUI, drug overdose...

Quick Cap: Pens slide continues with 3-2 loss to Kings

The Penguins surrended the first two goals, then came back, only to lose 3-2 on a third period goal by Drew Doughty. It really wasn’t a well played game, although it had some good spurts. The story of the game was this:   The Kings took seven penatlies, and the Penguins could get anything home on the powerplay. Meanwhile, the Kings went 1 for 3 on the powerplay. The other story...

The Upcoming Salary Cap Situation by @ExcitedBobErrey

With all the hype and buildup surrounding the Pittsburgh Penguins at the trade deadline, mostly surrounding Ryan Kesler, it's understandable to feel a bit let down at first once the dust settled. Going into the day dreaming of a player like Kesler, Matt Moulson, or Alex Hemsky finding their way to Pittsburgh, it certainly seemed that much of the fanbase was anticipating Ray Shero...

trade deadline recap (with kittens)

The Penguins acquired (wait for it) (as if you don't already know) Lee Stempniak and Marcel Goc. Stempniak in Calgary the last few seasons:   Obviously Calgary is trash, but what stands out to us is his relatively high amount of ice time over the last few seasons.  If he can be counted on to play reliably on regular shifts, we're down.  Ignore his +/-...

By: Casey Johnston (@CaseyR82) Defense Gets Act Together After giving up 10 non-regulation goals in their last two games, the Penguins went into Nashville and played a sound defensive game, allowing only 16 even strength shots against Marc-Andre Fleury, allowing one goal, and killing all four of Nashville’s power play chances.  With the injuries to Paul Martin and Kris Letang...

Penguins Try Everyman Approach: Add Goc and Stempniak

What a difference a year makes. Eleven months ago Penguins fans were dancing in the streets following GM Ray Shero’s blockbuster deadline deals for Jarome Iginla, Jussi Jokinen, Brenden Morrow, and Douglas Murray. And this season? Not so much. Shero tried to add some glitter. He vigorously pursued Vancouver’s Ryan Kesler, only to be rebuffed. Nor was he able to land speedy Edmonton...
